Well this is just unnecessarily mean.
Some radio listeners in England think Her Madgesty is being excluded from BBC Radio 1‘s playlists because of her age!!!
Apparently, even though her new song Living for Love is requested on the premiere station, the 56-year-old’s music is being relegated to BBC Radio 2; which just so happens to have a demo of 35 and up.
In other words, the BBC don’t consider Madge’s music relevant to today’s youth!
But Madonna isn’t alone in all this!
But BBC Radio wasn’t going to take these accusations lightly!
The company in question took to their Facebook page after receiving numerous complaints on the issue, saying:
Radio 1 does not ban anyone ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ please don’t believe the papers.
The tracks played on Radio 1 are chosen on musical merit and their relevance to our young audience on a case-by-case basis, and whilst around 40% of the country’s 15 to 29-year-olds tune into Radio 1 each week, an artist’s age is never a factor.
In fact, Paul McCartney currently has two tracks – FourFiveSeconds and Only One – on the Radio 1 playlist.
But what do U think!?!?
Is this an example of ageism being perpetuated in today’s society?
